Once your basic training is complete there are plenty of advanced courses to be had either in-state or out.

Estheticians moving to Indiana from out-of-state do have access to a reciprocity agreement, meaning that — provided your training and experience is sufficient you may be able to gain employment in Indiana without further training. Contact the state board for more info.
